Ham and Cheese Stromboli Recipe

A Stromboli is an American-Italian sandwich-y-type food invention. While similar to a calzone (you could use this filling to make calzones too), the shape is totally different. Stromboli is the long-shaped one.

Notes:

• If you do not like or are allergic to, sesame seeds, simply omit them from the recipe.

• Mozzarella is the “traditional” cheese used in a Stromboli. If you prefer some other melting cheese, feel free to substitute.

• You can use any prepared pizza dough you like, as long as it is fresh (defrosted), or make your own!

• The ham can be leftovers from cooked dinner ham, or luncheon meat from the deli!

Ham and Cheese Stromboli Ingredients:

• 13 oz Pizza Dough (canned pizza dough crust is 13.8oz, which is fine)
• 1 cup Ham, diced

• 2 TBSP Onion, diced

• Salt, to taste

Ham and Cheese Stromboli Directions:

• Preheat oven to 375°F.
• Rollout the pizza dough onto a baking sheet. Fix any wrinkles or tears by squeezing the dough together. You may need a dab of water to get it to stick closed.
• Lay the ham out evenly on the dough, in the center, forming a line, staying approximately 1 inch from the edges of the dough.
• Sprinkle the onion and cheese over the ham.
• Working from the bottom, fold the bottom portion of the dough up approximately ¾ of the way to the top so that it covers the ingredients. Fold the sides in, and then roll the Stromboli over the rest of the way to the top so that it sits seam down. With a sharp knife, cut 3 – 4 slits in the top of the dough to allow steam to escape while baking.
• Beat the egg in a small bowl and with a pastry brush, brush the egg all over the top of the Stromboli.
• Sprinkle the salt, pepper and sesame seeds over the top so that it sticks in the egg wash.
